"We have an even hotter day on tap Sunday, with higher rain chances," News 6 meteorologist Madeline Evans said. "We will reach a high of 92, with a 40 percent chance of rain. We will stay dry through the morning and afternoon, not seeing any rain until after 2 p.m."

As the west coast sea breeze fires up, there could be some light scattered showers, Evans said. However, the heaviest of it moves into the interior counties by 7 p.m., continuing as late as 10 p.m., she added.

The overnight low will be in the low to mid-70s.

Next week, rain chances go up to 50-60 percent all week.

The first official day of fall is Thursday.

Pinpointing the tropics

Tropical Depression Julia is still off the eastern coast, causing moisture to stick around Florida and making for rough seas.

Farther out is Tropical Storm Karl, which has winds of 40 mph and is moving west at 13 mph. Karl should strengthen by Monday and could be a Category 1 hurricane by Thursday.

Just off the coast of Africa is Invest 96, which now has a 70 percent chance of tropical development over the next five days. If the system develops, it will be named Lisa.
